Six males–including two teens–are facing charges in connection with multiple break-in incidents in Mississauga, Brampton, Oakville and other GTA municipalities.
Peel police say the arrests were made as part of Project Red-Sag, an initiative focused on break and enter incidents that focused on break-ins in Peel and surrounding areas.
The project was launched in September of this year.
Police allege that investigations conducted during Project Red-Sag indicated the group of suspects was “actively committing residential break and enters throughout the Greater Toronto Area.”
